吉澤 究 Sadam Yoshizawa

Born in February of 1979. Resides in the city of Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture. Produces countless illustrations utilizing crosshatching and pointillism. Up until now his work has focused on creating artworks mainly for skateboard companies, as well as clothing brands and shops.Currently works both in Japan and overseas. Sadam continuously produces original works and regularly exhibits in both solo and group shows.

Through the process of daily sketching, Sadam pushes himself to constantly search for new techniques and methods of self-expression, a philosophy that bears a direct relation to his artworks.

1979年2月生まれ。宮城県仙台市在住。クロスハッチング、点描によるイラストレーション作品を多数制作。これまでスケートボードカンパニーを中心にクロージングブランド、ショップ等に多くの作品を提供。国内外で精力的に活動中。オリジナル作品も継続的に製作し定期的な個展の開催や合同展にも積極的に参加し発表の場にしている。

最近では活動分野をさらに広げながら型にハマらない表現手法、表現思考を日々のスケッチを通して探究し、自身の作品制作に繋げている。
